Enjoyed your comments on my D8. One of the first models I made was a 1/16 scale 325 CAT excavator that I designed. It was made as a present for a mans retirement, per his son. I made it out of Walnut, Cherry and sycamore. The son had mentioned painting itCAT yellow, however I showed him the natural wood and he was happy with it that way. I will post it some day. Later
